Default A TURN SIGNAL LEVER cost HOW much???

This is slightly off-topic since it'* for our '96 Trans Sport, not the Bonneville, but still...

We're out last night, driving around, strictly routine, and I go for the high-beams. Instead of a *click* I get *CRUNCH*. Something falls away from my fingertips. I turn on the interior lights and find the turn-signal lever is now dangling from its cruise wiring harness, broken off a couple of inches out from the steering column where there'* a kind of molded plastic elbow on the thing.

So I figure, okay, sh*t happens, I'll just order another one tomorrow...

(Audience: YOU FOOL!!!)

Yup. The answer is: Part No. 25140640: $129.74!!!

Me: No, I don't need the cruise servo; I'm talking about the _lever_.

Counter Guy: Yeah, $129.74. [He points to the diagram on the monitor.] See? It'* an electrical part.

Yes! Of course! It'* got a PUSH BUTTON and a SLIDE SWITCH on it! THAT explains things! Thank you VERY much!

So needless to say, I didn't order it. A junkyard part will probably be stressed and ready to break in the same place. I could use recommendations for an on-line order instead.

(The price breakdown on the printout that he gave me shows List: 129.74 Trade: 90.82 Cost: 64.87, so those are my target prices to shoot for, it looks like.)

Any feedback welcome; will check in again later today...

$129.000 clams for an electrical lever

Good thing you know how to monkey around with electrical components. Most average joe driver needs to pay some sweaty mechanic $87 bux an hour to install it

Any luck with www.gmpartsdirect.com ?

If the cruise control in on the turn signal like most gm cars that is what you are paying for. There is no way just to buy the lever with out the cruise control buttons on it. I would have to say check some junkyards. I know you said they would probably break also but I had to get one for my 88 bonneville and it lasted for a long time. You can buy a lot of them from a junk yard for $130.

...and the winner is: http://www.gmpartsdirect.com

Despite a rather steep "shipping" charge of $12.97 (*cough*) it'* still the best price I could find of all the recommendations I was able to follow up on (cost price: $64.87), so thanks to everyone for responding.
